Pretty Things Smoothie (with Beet, Strawberry, and Citrus)

When I heard that David Bowie passed away 10 days ago, I was in disbelief. How could he be gone? To echo the phrase I kept reading others lament, "I didn't know he was even mortal!" His creativity and talent seemed superhuman. Even though I didn't know David Bowie personally, I was incredibly saddened by … Continue reading Pretty Things Smoothie (with Beet, Strawberry, and Citrus)
